Change of plan saw us down to the boat Saturday morning, rather than Sunday, and as we arrived at about 10h00, it was chucking it down...... the wind was blowing all of 1kt and less, and we decided to just sit on the boat for a while instead of going out sailing.... no fun to be had in thrashing rain and no wind! Wandered over to the chandlers, and bought a replacement ensign staff for the princely sum of a tenner..... While there we wandered over to a friends boat, to find him with some other friends who have just bought a Bavaria 34..... they have very little sailing experience... in fact pretty much zero sailing experience.... should be interesting in the lock! So.... didn't get the MOB practice done.... and left by 15h00 after getting a few much delayed jobs done.... No sailing next weekend... its Southampton Boat Show, and we are going new boat shopping!
